Proud of yourself, Governor? NC Legislature? Photos from Moral Mondays yesterday in Raleigh

This one of the old man handcuffed, leaning on his cane, is particularly touching.




For a view of the photo gallery from yesterday:

There were about 80 people arrested yesterday...bringing the total number of arrests to just under 700. Thousands of people
also attend the events in support of the protest, but do not put themselves in the situation where they will be arrested. ( My husband and oldest son were in attendance yesterday.)

National and international attention has done nothing to budge the Repubs, who are determined to ignore the protests and go full steam ahead with their right wing agenda.

3. Moral Mondays have been organized by the NC NAACP

"which take aim at the state’s assault on voting rights, healthcare, unemployment insurance, public schools and so much more."
